Top 30 Under 30

If you are a youth (under age 30) or know a youth, you have the opportunity to support our yearly Top 30 Under 30 campaign. Every winter, we put out a call for nominations for young people who are actively working towards the UN Global Goals in a variety of ways. Stay updated on ways you can be involved by following us on social media or checking for updates on our Top 30 webpage.

The SDG Hub

This is a space for young Albertans between the ages of 18 and 24 to connect with other young people and mentors from our vast network. We are on a mission to train and engage the next cohort of young leaders who are working towards building a fair, equal and prosperous Alberta. Depending on the season, we may be looking for applications for our next cohort or in the middle of the SDG Hub season! Check our SDG Hub webpage for current updates.
